I have registered on the forums some time ago, but only now got the time to post my introduction thread.
So my name is Mark and i live in Hungary. I recently got addicted to MB's, and yeah.. that means i don't really mark other car's as "real cars".. if you get what i mean
I have just aquired my first ever car, which is ofcourse a MB. (hence why i am here :P) Been working and saving up cash for quite a while for it, so yes. Bought it from my own and worked for $$$.
The size of it kinda fits me, since i am about 2m's tall.
I'm trying to take care of it as much as i can, and what i may afford.
So about the car..
A W124 Sedan from 1988. 4-speed manual transmission. 2litre Diesel engine.
I think i am the 8th owner of it, since it is registered in my country (since 1992). It was used as a Taxi for 7 years in our capital city, Budapest.
So it has a lot of history and probably over (as i have calculated, and from service books) 2 MILLION km's.
Still, it has its original strong-going engine with a quite healthy sound.
Recently did a full filter change, and full oil change plus got a new pre-filter on the fuel line also. The engine runs like a dream, always started when needed, even in -23Â°C.
I also did a lot of other small fixes around it, just to make everything work and shiny and whatever.. you know
Some pictures (a bit old, but thats what i currently have from my iPhone):
Ofcourse there are some non-working parts on her, but those are going in new threads in the appropriate sections.
Thats about it, i hope i can be an active member of this community.
